Coccothrinax crinita ‘Old Man’ Palm Tree

 

Habitat and Distribution: Native to Cuba the ‘Old Man’ grows in seasonally flooded savannas and occasional hilly areas.

Description: The fan-shaped dark green palmate leaves of this solitary palm form a mesmerizing spiral pattern that sits atop a dense, woolly mass of pale brown fibers that beard the trunk in its entirety. On average the Old Man grows 8-10 ft in height. (It’s been recorded as tall as 30 ft) 

Culture and Cultivation: This gorgeous, truly tropical palm enjoys high humidity, a spot sheltered from the wind and temperatures above 50F. The soil should have combinations of peat moss and sand to replicate native growing conditions and be kept evenly and consistently moist. Once past the slow seedling stage, its growth pattern quickens.

Comments: An extraordinary palm that deserves a prominent position in a landscape.
